Travis Jankowski has been around a little. He broke into the big leagues in 2015 with the Padres and played parts of the next 5 seasons in San Diego. In 2020, Jankowski played for Cincinnati and last year, he was with Joe Girardi and the Philadelphia Phillies. Now, the former UAlbany nemesis is fighting for a roster spot with the Mets. UAlbany nemesis?
Monday night the UAlbany Great Danes continue their lesson plan under Coach Killings. Their non-conference schedule is a bear. Killings is aware but sees the benefits. "Monday presents a tremendous opportunity to compete against an ACC opponent on the road. As we continue our journey through this season, I am excited to see the growth of our program and players against a tough and versatile Boston College team" said Killings.
Nobody told Dwayne Killings that it would be easy taking over a Division I basketball program. Add in 9 new student-athletes to the program and an entirely new coaching staff, and the equation appears tougher in front of the rookie head coach. That's the way that the 40 year old head coach appears to like it.
